Total time:


1 cup oat bran (dry, uncooked)
3/4 cup orange juice
1 cup plus 1 T applesauce unsweetened
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup honey
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon grated orange rind or 2 tsp orange extract
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 1/2 cups oats
1 cup nuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup ground flaxseed (opt)


1. Position oven racks to accommodate 2 sheets at a time in the center of oven. Preheat oven to 375°. Coat nonstick cookie sheets with cooking spray.
2. Mix together oat bran and orange juice in a small bowl and set aside to soak for 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine applesauce, oil, honey, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, and orange rind in a large bowl, using an electric mixer, until smooth.
4. Measure flour, soda, and powder into a sifter and sift over applesauce mixture.
5. Add the soaked oat bran and remaining ingredients to the large bowl and mix thoroughly with a strong wooden spoon. Drop by slightly heaping tablespoons 1" apart. (To save time, load cookie sheets up with as many cookies as possible, baking 2 trays at a time. Stagger trays 1 to the left and 1 to the right, to allow air circulation around each outer edge.) Bake until lightly browned or 12 to 14 minutes.
